Seriously I feel I'm about to pop! This is my second. After sitting I am bent over with low pains and it takes a while to stand up straight, is baby pressing down low?. When i sneeze I leak, it's driving me mad and I'm all puffy at the top of my bikini line with the skin quite stretched this didn't happen first time. Does anyone else have these symptoms? It's not going to last for another 4 months is it?

Im afraid I have the puffy bikini line! I'm 39+1 so bad news im afraid! I was in triage with another lady and she had the same too, she had an internal exam but was embarrassed about it and the kind midwife said in a few hours the least of your worries will be a fat fanny! Lovely! She was about to be induced x

I am also 20 weeks and have a puffy bikini line, I leak when I sneeze (so much so had to change my pants when gettibg dressed the other day as I sneezed! ) and got a bad back most of the time now!

I think the puffy bikini line is due to this being my second as my tummy wasn't in great condition after I had ds! grin
oh the joys!

I'm 31 weeks today and just started noticing the 'puffy bikini line' (tho I might steal the fat-fanny moniker instead)
It's DC1 so I'm clearly just unfit/old as bump is low too.
I'm consoling myself with the fact that bigger babies are healthier, I can still walk unaided and there's no sign of HBP or GD. Hope you are doing ok OP thanks
